Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I never know what to say about me, so I asked some ex girlfriends.
One told me I was always extremely honest with her, always sincere
and up front whenever she asked me anything. Another said I was
adventurous, spontaneous and open-minded when it came to her off
the wall ideas. A number of friends, as well as my boss as the work
Xmas do, have mentioned that my sense of humour is well liked, so I
guess that's a plus.
In a woman, I want someone who is willing to be completely open and
honest. I want the type of relationship free from game-playing and
second guessing, where we keep no secrets and if one of us is not
happy then neither of us is happy.
I want a woman who has a sense of humour but can also be serious,
and who has her own interests and dreams and things she is
passionate about. I don't mind if we don't like all the same
things, that way we can both learn from each others tastes and
experience things we wouldn't have though of before.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a company that trades in scrap metal. I love my job.
Everybody seems to come to me whenever there's a problem, so it's
rewarding to solve them all and get things moving again. I get to
cover almost every role and am pretty much left to my own devices
so have a great amount of freedom.
I just started using weights again a couple of weeks ago, and have
just bought some running shoes so I can start running. I read, I'm
writing a book(involving fitness/pyschology/body language/cookery
and all sorts), and I take an improv workshop one night a week.
I've got a couple of business ideas I'm looking to get off the
ground in the next month or so as well, and I'm trying to find time
to teach myself guitar too.
I have several business ideas, a couple of which I'm working on
right now. I want to do something that's going to help
Apart from that, I want to travel a little. I always wanted to see
Machu Picchu in Peru, and visit the far east.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Using colourful language at inappropriate times;
my job (at one time there was 3 people doing it, now just
giving advice and then not following it myself;
saying things then realising they sounded different in my
one or two things I'm probably not allowed to mention here, naughty
remembering miscellaneous crap(song lyrics, rules to games like
Warhammer that I've not played in 15+ years, whole sections of
film/TV dialog) in place of things I really should remember;
being slightly concerned at the number of people who seem to be
proud of their borderline alcohol dependency;
making jokes out of everything;
not being able to think of anything I'm really good at.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've never considered it. Probably the shaved head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, and the 3 others in the
series. It also has the accolade of being the only (series of)
fiction book(s) that I can remember reading. I generally stick to
non-fiction as I like to learn.
Movies: The Lost Boys; The Princess Bride; Fast Times At Ridgemont
High; The Goonies; Legend; Innocent Blood; Highlander; The
Shawshank Redemption; Stand By Me; anything by Kevin Smith; and so
many others. I love horror films(I have all the Alien films and the
special edition of Predator) and just about anything from the 80's.
My guilty pleasure is 50's scifi B-movies and creature
I'm also going to include TV here: The Big Bang Theory; Mock The
Week; QI; NCIS; Mythbusters; Monk; a cartoon from my childhood
called "The Mysterious Cities Of Gold"; Peep Show; Skins; Quantum
Music: Most modern music is crap so I tend to listen to older
stuff. I like individual songs rather than bands, and only tend to
listen to music in the background as I'm doing other things. That
said, I do like Cheap Trick; Queen; Metallica; Iron Maiden; Muse;
and probably quite a few others too.
Food: This is all so unhealthy. I love ice cream with hot chocolate
sponge cakes. And cheesecakes. And the Oreo Cookie Cake at Buddies.
I really like chocolate too, and so many other unhealthy snacks and
foodstuffs I wouldn't know where to start. I'm told I make very
nice cookies, and my cheesecake is amazing. I'm not a fan of
vegetables (I'll eat potatoes but apparently they don't count), and
the only eggs I eat are made of chocolate. Oh, and cheese makes
everything taste better. Everything. I currently have an obsession
with apples. This isn't all I eat though. Spaghetti bolognese is
probably my favourite thing in the world as well as all the
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, my friends, The Internet, food, orange and pineapple
Yes, I know that's only 5. Clearly I'm a rebel and I'm sticking it
to the man. Take that the man.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
So many many things, for example:
How I can self improve? How I can improve the world around me? Why
are BMW/Audi/Mercedes owners even allowed to drive? Why does Dr Sam
Beckett insist on having loud conversations with Al, who only he
can see, when there are other people close by? What shape would a
circle be if pi was exactly 3? Why do women need so many pairs of
shoes? Seriously. What's with all the shoes? Are you all
stockpiling in case there's a shortage?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
doing the same thing I do every night Pinky, trying to take over
I'm probably at home, on the internet or reading a book, or
exercising, or cooking. Maybe with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nothing really springs to mind, but that's probably because I
already know all of my secrets. Your secrets are far more
interesting to me. Like that thing you used to do that nobody else
knows about. Yes, that thing.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're not quite the usual "clubbing every Friday/Saturday night,
drinking till I'm sick" type;
You're willing to accept my family tradition of roast chicken every
you want to;
you're open to my spur of the moment ideas like going for a walk in
the woods in the middle of the night, or deciding to spend the
weekend at some hotel or similar I've just happened across online.
